A Message from the Universe

How often you say,
with every look away
the stare toward the screen,
a message projected out;
this is not enough.

All riches abound,
and calls to connect,
yet there it is again,
signal loud and clear;
this is not enough.

Striding onward,
ignorant to see,
choosing not to hear,
what you’re really saying
this is not enough.

The longing you feel,
the thirst to be quenched,
kept below the fear you
so fiercely protect with distraction;
that you are not enough.

Dive deeply within, go beyond,
by seeing me you see you
reflected back, and you are there to love.
You are there to cradle the innocent child that you are.

You are enough child and it is time for you to know.

You have always been enough and so have they, and there is nothing you could ever do or say to change that fact.

You are enough.

You are the riches of the cosmic dance of stars, that shine outward in all ways.

Breathe in and know it to be true.

Let the star live within you.

What to Know for 2018

Congratulations on surviving 2017! healing, life, love, blog, 2018, prediction, energy forecacst 2018, 2017,

Many people were hit hard with health challenges personally, or for their loved ones. And along with the health challenges many of us experienced big life changes like moving house, changing jobs, changing entire career paths, and barely anyone was saved from being left questioning their reason for existence and purpose in life.

But don’t worry folks, while 2018 will continue to challenge us especially in the arena of life path and health, things will get easier. We’ll be able to cope better, our base line mood will begin to lift, and our overall energy, passion, and motivation for life will increase. Phew! Bring it on!

If you worked with the energy of 2017, you would’ve already reflected on what’s really important to you and you would’ve dropped the superficiality you previously attached to your life. That will really help with experiencing more ease in your life, and more depth in your relationships. If that’s the case then you’ll also enjoy a rise in your energy, and an uplifting of your being. If you haven’t done that as yet, then it’s time to stop what you’re doing and get real. We won’t be here forever, so it’s time for a life review and to ask yourself, how do you want to spend your time here on this planet?

What’s really important to you when you shed everything you’ve thought you were meant to care about, and everything you were told you needed to aim for?

Meditation will play a helpful role in the acceleration of our being and spiritual expansion in 2018. And investing time and even money into gaining a deeper understanding, and a better working relationship with your mind will prove invaluable. Things have changed and it’s not such a long road to heal our wounds and discover in a real way, more of our potential as an unlimited consciousness. So even if you’ve tried meditation, mindfulness or alternative therapies before, it’s time to give it another crack. You might just be surprised! Feel into what you’re drawn to and don’t overthink it. The time is right.

Exercise will also help the cause, and will be beneficial for experiencing more ease within this physical body. These two go hand in hand for our mind, body and spirit health and even combing the two and turning your walks or runs into a meditation practice will be beneficial. Also connection with other people will be important and will bring you much soul nourishment, so value your friendships and family.

But it’ll all be easier with the fiery energy available to us all in 2018! 

Inline image 1Call on the fire within you, and call in more energy and consciousness to your being. We’re able to hold a higher vibration which will make sailing through our lives easier, even through the stormy bits and tumultuous waves. So use it!

It’s time to drop the guard and open up more emotionally. You’re being urged to reach out more to loved ones and stop putting off those calls and catch ups. This is a difficult one for me, and I’ve already been pushed to sit in vulnerability and let people in. So if I can do it – so can you!

Our powers of manifestation are increasing, and you may already be experiencing a sense of thinking about someone or something and then it appears in your life. Have fun with this, but don’t get caught up in controlling your life and trying to manifest everything you think you want – remember, that while you may create your life there is a higher power that can help, a higher power that sees the bigger picture, in a much more holistic way than what we can down here on earth. Think of us as the ants with only a narrow, small viewpoint. Call on the loving beings that guide you and the power of the universe.

Often when we get too caught up in the game of manifestation we forget that we don’t have all of the answers, and when we focus too hard on what we think we want, we actually block an even better reality, one that we couldn’t even have imagined, from taking shape in our lives.

Best wishes for 2018, enjoy the new energies and work with them. It’s time for us to enjoy flowing with the river instead of always fighting against it.

With love,

Sharon

I’ve been on a journey of spiritual awakening and want to develop my psychic gift. What is it that I need to know or do?

Hi Amy, I’ve posted the answer to your question here, as we’re are all connected and the answer originally intended for you, can also help others…

I love that you write psychic ‘gift’ as if you have only one, you have many and I feel for you especially it’s about dabbling in them all, not favouring one over the other, but beginning to play and strengthen each one, they will bounce off each other grow more easily that way. I see a tidal wave, implying a surging forward on your journey. Does that make sense to you? Maybe even, if you haven’t already, join a spiritual development group where each week you try a different way of connecting in. They are all there for you.

Also, alongside your spiritual / psychic development, also work on your mind. It is time to fade out the doubting thoughts that arise. Everyone has those thoughts and it’s really about whether you choose to listen and have doors close, or you hear them and choose to not listen.

I also see healing work, healing hands. Can you feel energy in your hands? Heat, tingling sensations? They are calling to you! Have you started or looking into Reiki or energy healing? You’ll have fun with this!! Getting into energy healing will also help open your other gifts as it’ll quieten your mind and help you focus, then messages and images etc will arise.

There is one guide in particular that is coming through very strongly. If you don’t know of them already, just invite them in. Start journalling or talking, and see if you can pause – like the pausing between breaths – you’ll ‘hear’ them in the stillness, but not necessarily through words.

When you’re working to increase your gifts, don’t aim for the obvious ones straight away – like seeing spirit or hearing words. Open up to the wonderous ways that spirit connects in, it’s not always so obvious so. There is a book that is important and helpful for you to read however I’m not getting the name. Have you come across a book recently, however not purchased it yet? If that makes sense, or comes to make sense soon – just get the book. Order it online, borrow from the library, or whatever, just know that it is a great tool for you and will help.

Keep your lightheartedness about your psychic / spiritual work, about this whole realm. The world you wish to connect into more is very light, so humour and a lightness of spirit really helps. So often when people delve deeper into this world they are all serious about it, however that lowers your vibration and makes it harder. It’s all about play 🙂

I hope this helps and I’d love to hear back after you’ve read it!

With love,

Sharon

I’m stepping aside

I read a quote on awakening that stopped me in my tracks.

“Man is God asleep.

God is Man awake.”

fractal-big-bang, oneness, evil, why do bad things happen, love, light, spiritual, awake, awakenings

The quote is seemingly so simple yet the power emanating forth is undeniable. It’s like it contains the keys to the universe and if we only truly understood it, on a vibrational level in our being, then we would wake up instantly.

I want to understand it. I want to know it’s truth.

I feel I have some awareness that I’m asleep, and mostly due to the experiences I’ve had, while only momentarily however, of being awake. These moments were my personal experience of sudden awakening or spiritual awakening, and revealled to me just how asleep I’ve been.

And when I drop back down into walking slumber what I notice most is our inclination for conflict. We seek it out. We revel in reasons to blast our anger and hate out to the world, and often is the case that we do it unwittingly. Many people justify it’s worth because they’re directing it toward a perceived ‘evil’ person, or violent, or mean, or insert worthy insult – person. Yet we fail to see that inciting hate, even through directed anger creates more of the same, and it’s the cause that’s begging us to bring into the light.

Our internal need for persecution of another, no matter how justified the cause is perceived to be, reveals our own inner demons. It only serves to reveal our hidden guilt, our shame, our ‘evil’ thoughts. It serves to show us what we hold within ourselves. Yet usually we’re so caught up in the external direction of our anger that we miss what’s really going on.

Well I’m stepping aside. No cause, no person, no situation warrants projection of guilt, no matter how grand or horrendous. It’s time to stop joining in on the ridicule.

It’s time for love, compassion, understanding and acceptance.

And most of all, it’s time for forgiveness.

Forgiveness for all.

And not because I’m better than some and therefore have the right to forgive, but because of the true spirited meaning of forgiveness. I wish to pass forward, through vibration, the recognition that nobody is evil, that many are lost and misguided, and that all will awaken. And when we awaken, and possibly a little before, we’ll all realise our true nature and that we’re all (yes I said ALL) quite the opposite of evil indeed.

When this takes place, all will be dissolved in an instant and we’ll return to love.

We’ll be light. For that is our true essence.

We’ll laugh and our energies will merge in loving oneness, in true acknowledgement of what is, and all else will be long forgotten as it never really was.

Oracle Guidance Cards 101

Every morning my partner and I sit down to a cup of tea and a deck of Oracle Cards. We take turns in selecting the deck, then cleanse them in our tibetan singing bowl, and then we choose a card each. He reads mine aloud, and I read his. It gets us looking inward and sharing aspects of our lives we might ordinarily gloss over or keep hidden.

Oracle cards are a powerful instrument offering us guidance and serving to connect us back into our own source of higher wisdom. I can’t recommend them enough.

So what are Oracle cards?

oracle cards, free reading, single card reading, psychic, whispers of love, josephone wall, divine, divination, guidance, help, tool, life, love, question

Oracle cards are a deck of cards, usually between 44 – 54 in a pack and each card depicts an image and a number. The cards come with an accompanying book with messages corresponding to the numbers on the cards. The messages will give you more information about the card you have selected.

And, how do you use them?

Anyway at all. However it’s a good idea to clear the energy of the cards prior to each use so you can elevate their energy and help make a clear connection. You can clear your cards by holding them next to your heart and breathing deeply simply intent for the energy to be clear, or hold them in your left hand and knock on the top of the deck three times with your right knuckles. You can also breathe into your heart and then blow on them.

Next, shuffle the cards. You can select a card after shuffling, or spread all of the cards out on the table choosing (with eyes open or closed) a card which calls to you. A card can also choose you by jumping out of the deck while you shuffle. Select the card by any means, such as if a card looks brighter than the others, or you look at that card first. You can also breathe deeply and ask to be guided to a card that is right for you, or that holds a message that will offer you high loving guidance.

I always call in my unconditionally loving soul / higher self, or I call in loving guides and beings to help me choose a card.

What are the benefits of working with Oracle Cards?

They’re a divination tool helping you connect with your Higher Self and the Universe with the intention to receive guidance. They lift us up and out of our monkey mind which can have a running in circles, and encourage inward focus and conscious self-awareness. They serve to plunge through chaotic thought and guide us toward a helpful way out of our current circumstances.

They help us see the light and re-align with Spirit instead of our ego-mind.

They’re ideal if you are struggling with an area or person in your life, whether it be from your past, present life, or your potential future. You can ask questions of the cards, or just ask “Tell me something I need to know right now” or “What would it be helpful for me to focus on?”

Other questions you can ask include:

What is holding me back from meeting a loving partner?
How do I block my spiritual / psychic gifts?
What is holding me back?
What are my current challenges?
Please bring me insight into my current work situation?
How can I feel more joy / peace / love etc?
Can I have insight into my current relationship with ________?
What would be important for me to focus on for my spiritual growth?

You can ask anything and the cards will help you go deeper.

How to choose an oracle deck?

There are so many oracle card decks out there. I great place to start is to head to your nearest crystal shop, new age book store or online and browse the decks of cards.

Breathe deeply into your heart and ask to be guided to a deck that is right for you. Select the deck of cards just like you would choose a card – letting it sing out to you by any means such as colour, a picutre that looks nice, an intriguing name that speaks to you.

Great Oracle decks especially when starting out include:

The Enchanted Map by Colette Baron-Reid
Wisdom of the Hidden Realms by Colette Baron-Reid
Mythic Oracle by Carisa Mellado
Gateway Oracle Cards by Denise Linn
Angel Therapy by Doreen Virtue
Angels, Gods & Goddess by Toni Carmine Salerno

sacred rebel, oracle cards, alana fairchild, reading, psychic, help, life, guidance, cardsSome more advanced decks to truly deepen your spiritual journey:

Sacred Rebel Oracle by Alana Fairchild
Isis Oracle by Alana Fairchild

The Light Lives On – but it’s not out there.

rob-gonsalves-amazing-artwork-self-realization-healing-love-wake-up-awakening-source-despairI felt a great sense of relief today when I remembered that the answers I seek are not out there. And it only takes an instant, a moment of holy realisation to drop the search and shift the focus.

No amount of perseverance, no job, no special love, no war won, no goal reached will bring me the feelings that I seek. Because what I seek doesn’t live out there. Out there is the mirror for which I can grasp at and reach to all I like, but I cannot bring it nearer.

I must stop clutching at hollow reflections and start sinking back into their source. And that source is me. It’s all of us, yet we cannot do it for another. We must do it for ourselves.

We must cease to judge and silence our condemnations, and turn ourselves around instead, all of the way, until all that we see are ourselves.

To deeply see ourselves are where the riches lie. But they don’t appear as riches as we might have hoped. For all we seek is hidden under a veil of pain, anguish and despair. But it is there. And it is worth it. Do not be fooled by the layering upon layering of mud, each one serving only to distract us, urging us to glare outwardly once more.

Do not be so easily perturbed and tricked into outward expression of inner pain. Sink deeper, well below the smokescreen we’ve built to hide what we’ve forgotten was ever there at all.

Sink deeper friend and so shall I. And if one of us forgets and peers outward for a moment, remind me kindly, for that which I seek is for me to find and always within reach.

For it never really left and lives patiently within.

How to Lucid Dream – let’s begin.

Recently the term ‘lucid dreaming’ has repeatedly entered my awareness from different sources, and in case you don’t know what that is I’ll briefly explain.

Lucid dreaming simply means becoming aware you are dreaming, whilst you are asleep. It’s bringing your conscious awareness into your sleeping state, and melding the two so you can start to actively participate in, and directly create and control your dreams.

how-to-lucid-dream-what-is-lucid-dreaming-lucid-dream-guide-help-meaning

I’ve had spontaneous experiences of lucid dreaming throughout my life, and they’ve all been really cool. And these days, even though I haven’t had a lucid dreaming experience for some time, if I’m trying to run in a dream some kind of awareness kicks in and I’ll run super fast, or I’ll even fly.

However I’ve only had a handful of times where I’ve felt without a doubt that I’m asleep and dreaming, and can do anything I want. This hasn’t happened for a while now, but I’m going to teach myself (and you if you’re keen) how to do it.

From my initial research I’ve learnt a few pointers to instigate an initial lucid dreaming experience, and this is for anyone whether you’ve done it before or are a complete beginner.

  1. Get a journal and a pen and keep it by your bed. You’ll need to write down your dreams first thing in the morning. It’s important to start this process even if you can only remember one or two random details from your dreams. Usually by doing this just once, then the following morning you’ll remember more details from the previous night, and even more the morning after that.
  2. Create what they call an ‘incubator dream’. It’s a planned dream experience, so you might daydream and choose what your dream will be, then work with this same dream experience and really connect into it as you’re drifting off to sleep. Also, if you wake up during the night, then take yourself into your planned dream – which is referred to as incubating your dream.

There are many more steps and processes you can do to start the process of encouraging your first lucid dreaming experience, but these two are the most important and effective so I thought I’d just start there. Gotta make it manageable for us.

I’ve already got a journal, so I’m going to ensure it’s right by my bed when I go to sleep tonight and that there’s a pen already slotted into it, on a blank page.

I’ve never done the incubator dream tactic, so I’m really keen to give this a go. What I’ve how-to-lucid-dream-what-is-lucid-dreaming-lucid-dream-guide-help-meaningcome up with today is a mental picture of an enchanted forest. In it I’m standing on a grassy clearing with trees around me forming a circle. There is an old willow tree directly in front of me with a door. Through the door is a little house embedded into the tree. I want to have a dream of that forest and enter the tree house, inside is the space where I can sit down with guides, spirits or beings.

Yes, I might be setting my sites high with my incubator dream, but what they hey!

Why do I want to learn to lucid dream, you might be asking? 

I’ve always loved the idea of connecting into my soul, angels and loving beings while sleeping, and it’s proved an easier space as our conscious chatty mind is already out of the way. So often I’ll go to bed with a question on my mind and I’ll ask it to the universe then fall asleep, and the question will be answered either in my dreams or I’ll wake the next morning knowing the answer. This has been extremely helpful when I’ve been stressed, worried and stuck in my life.

However with lucid dreaming, I’ve heard you can take this much further. You can create experiences in your dreams to expand your mind, learn and discover more about how we create our lives, you can call in divine beings and have in depth discussions with them, travel anywhere you want and more, receive deep healings, travel into past lives, and much more.

I want to use that space to explore healing (for myself and others), as well as developing an awareness of my subconscious beliefs and structures, and then learn how to change them during the dream. I’d also love to experience more about dream therapy, and the possibility of helping people work with their dream space for their own healing. As well as using the dream space to connect into angels, guides, and ascended masters for guidance and wisdom.

Do you want to learn to lucid dream with me?

What would your incubator dream be?

And the last tip before I go off to prepare is to repeat the mantra to yourself as you’re going to sleep; I will lucid dream tonight, or I’m going to lucid dream tonight. You can also ask for help to lucid dream from your Soul and divine guidance.

Have fun happy dreamers!

Sharon

 

 

 

Heart Chakra Opening -a 2 minute technique

Read through the following instructions and then close your eyes to begin.

Imagine a small ball of green light, just like a marble, sitting inside your chest in the middle of your rib cage.

The green ball of light has swirls of dark coloured energy through it, and feels hardened.

There is a small opening at the top of the marble. Place your attention on the top of the marble and inhale deeply, breathing right into it through it’s opening.

As you inhale breathing into the marble, it begins to spin.

Continue breathing into it and as it spins, it starts to grow. 

With every deep inhale, the small marble grows bigger and bigger as you fill it with air.

Now as you exhale you start breathing out and releasing the darkness from the green marble. Each exhale you draw the dark patches up and out from the marble, breathing them right out of your body.

Continue breathing into it, using your breath to help it spin and expand, and with your exhale, release the darkness.

The deeper your inhale the more the green marble moves and grows, and even starts to become lighter and more vibrant.

Continue the process until the green ball feels just right to you – the right size, motion, and colour. Notice how you feel compared with when you started the process less than 2 minutes ago.

heart chakra, healing, heal your heart, release pain, get over heart break, heart ache, heart chakra opening, chakra activation

Extra Tip:

To get more from your meditation, do this process 3 times a day.

The benefits you’ll experience can include: increased ability to remain calm, more clarity, more energy, increased motivation, more ease in relationships, feeling lighter, more happiness, feelings of joy, connectedness, and less stress.

With love and an open heart,

Sharon

 

 

Are you feeling overwhelmed?

It seems May is proving a very trying time for many of us, and sometimes when everything seems awry it’s time to look to the skies.

The New Moon tonight is said to be a Super one…. Which basically means it’s much closer to the Earth, so the tides will be bigger and we will be affected – due to being about 60% water and all…mercury retrograde, 5 planets, chakra balancing, energy forecast, healing, grounding,  New Moon

There are five planets in retrograde at this time, with many keen astrologers saying it’s time to clean house. During this period of intense retrograde, we’ll be faced with our old crap – like the stuff you’ve stored on top of your cupboard or down in the basement, or that bag of old clothes that you’ll never wear again but don’t want to get rid of either – but we’re talking about it in terms of your old emotional baggage.

The old patterns you used to play out, especially in terms of financial issues, relationships, self-doubt and fears will come up. We’ll be facing them head on, so instead of panicking or hiding under the covers, it’s time to be bold and brave.

They’re showing themselves for a reason, and it’s good to know that while we may have been more comfortable before they were actually still there impacting our lives from the crevices. So it’s a great opportunity when they reveal themselves, because then we’re able to recognise them and set them free as opposed to being unconsciously driven by them. 

This is the time that we need to instill any new, helpful habits, ones that will propel us forwards into being the person we really want to be. And often that means not pushing forward with our personal goals for now, but recognising what is truly important to us in our lives, and investing time and effort into those areas. Such areas might be our sense of community – our friends and family where, once we can get past our own dredged up issues from the past, can offer us great comfort and solace.

mercury retrograde, 5 planets, chakra balancing, energy forecast, healing, grounding,So with the undeniable amount of activity occurring overhead, it would be wise to take a second to step out of the firing line and ground back into Mother Earth. We can be assisted in the big clearing out in a major way – but it’s up to us to let it in.

It can be important to reflect on how many days or even weeks go by when we don’t get our feet into the sand, or feel the soft fresh grass under our feet. Or even ask ourselves when was the last time we took a walk by the water, or went for a sunset stroll?

The time is Now.

It is more important than ever to do some grounding. We are magnets for energy and with everything being intensified, it’s our own responsibility to nurture ourselves and take care of our energetic being.

And why is it so hard to get outside? We allow so many hours each day to plug in electronically, yet we are too busy to plug into nature.

My favourite way to ground is a sunset walk. It’s said that the radiant reds, oranges and pinks of a sunset cleanse and replenish our base chakras, and leave us feeling de-stressed and re-charged. A clearing and balancing of these lower chakras also help to drain the clutter of judgemental and doubting thoughts that take up space inside of our heads that only serve to bring us down. 

new moon may 2016, new moon, chakra, balancing chakras, energy,

So lets just all take a collective breath in.

It’s going to be okay.

The universe is here for us.

Everything that is occurring is helping us to expand, learn and grow. And it’s important to remember that we are being supported in the process, even though it may not feel like it at times.

With love,

Sharon
